My husband and I are wanted to delay our daughters 2 month vaccines. I am a stay at home mom and breastfeeding. We feel it is the best option for her, but want to make sure she remains healthy. In the last decade it has been said that vaccines could be the cause of autism. Are we making a smart wise choice in delaying until she is older?

The whole thing about vaccinations being linked to autism has been debunked. It is not true. The person who founded that claim admitted to it not being true.

The best thing to do? Talk to your pediatrician. Talk to her or him about spreading out the vaccinations. I would like to discourage you from opting out of them all together, since they are life saving in many cases. Talk to the doctor about all of your concerns. If he or she is unwilling to discuss your concerns, or force you to do they when THEY see fit, you are always free to find another pediatrician that appreciates and understand your feelings and is willing to work out a vaccination schedule for you that all of you are comfortable with.

I'm all about being healthy, but I'm all about taking advantage of technology and medical advancements when possible--and not interfering with my personal faith/beliefs. Your daughter, just like any other child, has a super low chance of any adverse issue from a vaccination, and it will save her from many illnesses. For my sons, I do vaccines, but I still try to let their bodies fight fevers and being sick as long as their temperature stays under an extreme level and they are comfortable. But I'm also not afraid to break out the Tylenol if they're miserable. It's all a happy balance, so don't stress too much. Life happens, and there's no telling what challenges you'll face, but vaccines will be the least of your troubles--I promise! :)

p.s. both children were very healthy at time of vaccinations. No family history of neurological diseases or food intolerances. My docto4 reconizes the sudden onset of food intolerances and acknowledges them to be odd, but refuses to consider a vaccine link (its only been within the community of other vaccine injured kids that that the trend is abundantly clear)

Vaccines aren't "the cause of autism" but nor are they unrelated. Listing a "cause" is oversimplifying. That said, I have two vaccine injured children. Lauren- you claim the chance of an adverse reaction is "super low". I ask, would you consider a 30 minute seizure an adverse reaction? My doctors did of course, as did I, so, they filled out an adverse reaction report. The government deemed her 30 minute febrile seizure NOT an adverse reaction, because fevers are. considered a normal response. I was told at the time that a seizure of her severity would almost certainly lead to epilepsy- a diagnosis she received within a few weeks (she is now ten and still has a few seizures a month). Remember- despite the doctors opinion, my daughter is listed as having a NORMAL RESPONSE to her vaccines. The fever could have killed her, and it still would have been a "normal response". So. don't buy into what the doctors are telling you, because they are not being told the truth.

As for delaying them- after this fiasco, I vowed t9 wait. I waited FIVE YEARS before I vaccinated my second child. First two went fine, spaced them over six months etc. Third dose, she gets hit- her gut is toast, her skin errupts into a nasty rash and she has a host of food intolerances she never had before (which we still haven't fully sorted through) It's not seizures (than heavens) but it makes simple things like birthday parties and family dinners a lot more complicated. And the rash has left some pretty nasty scars.
